Four Upcoming Food Events in L.A. You Don’t Want To Miss

Duck Taquitos (Red O), Boat Noodles (Pa Ord), L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade, LA Beer Week 2012 – thanks to Caroline on Crack (Clockwise L-R)

It’s that time, again, to present the essential food events going on the next few weeks around the city. It’s a wonder that I don’t do these more often, because I often want to highlight events that I don’t have time to write about before and after they occur.

The Hungry Cat Is Older Than My Cat: Last Day of Half-Off Specials Today

The bad news is, I rarely blog on the weekends. The good news is, the second of two days of The Hungry Cat’s 5-year Anniversary Celebration is today, all day – therefore, there’s still time to take advantage.

The celebratory special isn’t shabby, either. How is 50% off specialty cocktails, draft beer and all bottles of wine?! Though I can’t say I’m a regular, I’ve rarely had a bad cocktail at The Hungry Cat. Perhaps the only thing that would make tonight better is if they had simultaneously made this one of their Steamed Blue Crab Nights!

And, according to their latest tweet, after 5:30 PM they will be featuring 50% off oysters (grilled ones typically run $15 for a half-dozen) “and more”. And what exactly does that mean? Don’t look at me. Pop in to their Vine Street location to find out.
